{I’m now blogging at Intentionally Simple. I’d love to have you visit me there!}


Welcome to Frugal and Simple! My prayer is that you find the glimpse into my frugal and simple living inspiring, encouraging and helpful!

Our lifestyle is a combination of living frugally and simply to save money as well as being environmentally conscious, not wasteful and consumeristic. We use cloth napkins, make our own laundry detergent, use white vinegar to clean just about anything, shop secondhand and cloth diaper. All of these things are both frugal and green!

Contentment is also a theme of Frugal and Simple. Things don’t bring happiness; serving God through giving and loving does. In fact, contentment actually helps us to live a frugal life – it’s amazing how much money you save when you don’t buy stuff!

Minimalism and organization are two topics that I love. We would not be considered minimalists by most but we don’t have an overabundance of things; in fact we’ve discovered that the less stuff we have the simpler life is! As far as organization goes, it’s pretty easy to stay organized when there’s not much to organize!

And of course there are the mishaps and glimpses into my messy home; there are those days that simply getting dinner on the table is an accomplishment!

About Me::

I’m a follower of Christ, a wife and a mama.

I grew up in Tennessee  and lived there until moving to Georgia in October 2010.

I am passionate about agriculture. I grew up on a farm, was a Tennessee FFA State Officer {I met my husband through the FFA!} and have a BS in Agricultural Communications {the perfect degree for me, combining my love for agriculture and writing!}

My husband, John David, is a church technical director.  He ‘s the man behind most of the technical aspects of this blog.

Our first son, Paxton, was born April 16, 2010. We welcomed our second son, Weston, on December 22, 2011! We are so thankful that God has entrusted them to us and we are committed to raising them to become men of God!   “Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him.” -Psalms 127:3 NIV
